Buy your coffee beans in bulk and grind them at home

Did you know? Most of the coffee packs that you buy in supermarkets are not recyclable. If your coffee bag is made only of paper, it can be recycled. But most of the time, it is paper coated with a thin plastic film to keep the coffee fresh, so it cannot be recycled because the mixed materials cannot be separated.

Instead of buying packaged coffee, buy your coffee beans in bulk. You can then grind them at home with a manual or electric grinder, and drink delicious coffee with zero waste! Easy!
